Angel Hernandez Wiki – Angel Hernandez Biography
Angel Hernandez, a 16-year-old sophomore at Chisholm Trail High School, had just completed a 5K run at a district track meet in Haltom City in Tarrant County on Oct. 13 when he collapsed right after crossing the finish line, witnesses told KHOU. The teenager’s worried friends accompanied him to a water source where he fell again. He was rushed to a local hospital where he died an hour later. Brent Brevard, who coached Hernandez at Chisholm Trail High School last year before retiring, said he was the ideal student-athlete. “He worked hard and cared about his teammates,” he told the outlet. “But he also behaved well in school and took care of his grades.” “He’s a great kid, a nice kid, a good student, and it was terrible news,” Brevard added.
Angel Hernandez was 16 years old.
Cause of Death
Friends and family still don’t know what caused the teenager to collapse after running one of his best races. Hernandez’s funeral was held Friday, where his family received a varsity letter jacket, KHOU reported. Later that night, at the high school homecoming football game, a moment of silence was held in his memory. The teenager also had a passion for martial arts, according to his obituary, and competed in competitions across the country. His karate coach, Ashley Wood, said he has been comforting his devastated teammates since his death. She said he showed no signs of illness before his collapse. “He made you love him with his personality,” she told KHOU. “He had a contagious smile. The moment of silence helps us know that everyone loved him.” Wood launched a GoFundMe campaign to help Hernandez’s family cover funeral costs. “It’s very difficult. We will never get over it. We will never forget it. We will miss him here, but we will always love him,” she said. Hernandez is survived by his parents, Antonio and Elsie Hernandez, and his younger brother, Mark Hernandez.
